Major memo to fellow clean freaks: Social media sensation The Home Edit (thehomeedit.com) dropped a new collection with The Container Store (containerstore.com) to bring its mise en place mentality to the masses. The celebrity organizers behind the color-coded shelves of Busy Philipps, Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon will soon launch a new book and a Netflix show. We uncover the secrets to founders’ Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin’s no-mess success.

Why did you create a product line?
JT: It’s always been our dream to create a product line—literally from the very beginning! In our case, necessity was, and continues to be, the mother of invention. The more homes we organized, the more we found ourselves thinking, ‘Wow, if only we had ‘blank’,’ except those products didn’t exist. Our primary goal was to create products that are as functional as they are beautiful to fit someone’s needs, lifestyle and the items that encompass it.

Which products are you most excited about? CS: All of them. Is that an option? I guess, if I had to choose, I’d say the fridge drawer. It’s stackable, like our divided drawer in the first collection, but this one includes an integrated handle and is customized for standard fridge measurements. Honestly, it’s a game changer. JT: I’m the most excited for our new cereal canister. It seals like our other canisters, but comes with a pour spout and tapered handle. It’s so versatile and can also be used for grains or other dry goods. I’m obsessed with organizing all of my cereals now.

What’s your No. 1 organizing tip?
JT: Start small. Don’t feel like you need to tackle your entire home all at once. It’s more manageable to choose your priority and break that project into bite-size steps. From there, you’ll be able to take that confidence and knowledge you gained and apply it to an even larger project. It’s all about staying motivated with a realistic approach.
